With the help of modern technology, there are many genetic testing available that will show if a person carries the gene for certain disease. A financially capable individual could easily found out if he or she carries the gene for any deadly disease that may run in their family. However, knowing the result of the test is not mentally easily. No matter how strong a person could be, it is always tough to find out that there exists a gene that could bring the end of his or her life. In the article “Screening for Alzheimer’s Gene Tests the Desire to Know”, two brothers have hard time deciding whether they should go through the genetic testing to find out if they carry the gene for Alzheimer. This disease runs in their family and they are witnessing their father go through the heartbreaking conditions of it. One brother did the test and found out that he does not have the gene. The other brother did not do the test because he thinks he is not capable of knowing the result. Despite the fact that he has children, he cannot bear the truth of knowing that he will die from such a horrible and suffering disease. I totally agree with the second brother, I am very weak emotionally and cannot tolerate to know that I have the gene for a deadly disease which will show up at some point in life. I rather live my life happy now with not knowing anything than worrying about what to expect in the future.
